I have been trying to use windows live writer to post to wordpress but run into a few problems after searching Google i found some suggestion but still has not found the answer to my problem, So i have decided to write this post just in case any has any issues posting to WordPress using windows live writer. This is very annoying because it was working fine until now i started getting this error message that “ • An error occurred while attempting to connect to your blog: Invalid Server Response – The response to the blogger.getUsersBlogs method received from the web-log server was invalid. You must correct this error before proceeding.”
I found a website with some detailed information about how to solve this error which i will post here
Problems connecting to a blog site using Windows Live Writer (WLW) are common; especially for PHP based systems. When this happens, you usually see an error message like this one:
• An error occurred while attempting to connect to your blog: Invalid Server Response – The response to the blogger.getUsersBlogs method received from the web-log server was invalid. You must correct this error before proceeding.
In this article, we’ll see the measures that we can take to resolve many of these communication problems, especially those who are not already or are poorly explained on the Internet.

Title: Solving the connection problems of Windows Live Writer (WLW) – Part 1
The vast majority of the communication problems for WLW mentioned on the Internet are about blogging systems based on PHP scripts; not only because these systems are the most used (think about WordPress, Drupal and Joomla) but also sadly because of the way that web services – an essential component of protocols such as XML-RPC used by WLW – are implemented in PHP which makes them very sensitive to many type programming errors; even as small as an extraneous white line at the beginning or the end of a script file. The rest of this article will deal only with communication problems related to PHP. Of these blogging systems, WordPress (WP) is picking up the lion’s share, so the examples used in this article are based on WP. However, this doesn’t mean that you won’t find anything interesting here if you are using another blogging platform than WP. Except for the first example that uses a common problem specific to WP to explain the log file of WLW, the majority of the explanations given here will fully apply to many other blogging systems using PHP.
With the exception of a particular problem related to the uploading of images and video files, the vast majority of communication problems that you’ll get with WLW will happen when you’ll try to create a new account. In these cases, you’ll be greeted with the following error message “An error occurred while attempting to connect to your blog: Invalid Server Response – The response to the blogger.getUsersBlogs method received from the web-server log was invalid. You must correct this error before proceeding.”. Less often, and error will happen when you’ll try to publish a new article using an account that was working correctly in the past. In these cases, the method “blogger.getUsersBlogs” will be replaced in the error message with other methods such as metaWeblog.newPost or metaWeblog.getRecentPosts:
• The response to the metaWeblog.newPost method received from the web-log server was invalid.
• The response to the metaWeblog.getRecentPosts method received from the web-log server was invalid.
